At Least My Bowels Haven't Fallen Out
After a week or so of suspecting there's a cootie lurking within, I'm sick. I should've known when I went to bed at 6:00 on Tuesday night and could barely wake up at 6:30 Wednesday morning that something was amiss. Can't get warm until I take a hot shower. Slightly achy. You know how it is. So I'm sick. Woke up with two ears aching and head pounding. I just changed from my pajamas into different pajamas with a hoodie (warmer) and brushed my teeth and I think that will be the extent of my beauty regime for the day. Tomorrow is my regular day off so I'm hoping that two days of lots of fluids and lots of rest will have me back up to speed for Saturday since I am working the weekend. On the bright side, I always have a pot of home made soup on hand during the fall and winter so I'm going to just settle in with endless bowls of that and hope for some good movies on Turner. And if there are no movies, I have a book I'm in the middle of, a historical novel. So if one has to be sick, this is an acceptable situation.
Again, I blame my subarctic office for this. Do not tell me that cold does not make a person sick. I have been cold and now I am sick. It's science.
Hope all is well on your end on this sunny Autumn day. As for me, I'm sick.
2 Chronicles 21:15 And thou shalt have great sickness by disease of thy bowels, until thy bowels fall out by reason of the sickness day by day.
